Honestly buddy, I do things on the fly. All it takes is for something to click in my head and i do it. There was no plans until the day i made em. If you find the drivers skills in a box let me know. I will take a few.

Hi-res pics are the thumbnail pics below the 640x480 pics. I appreciate good pics of cars as you do to, so I am returning the favor.

I did cut, shorten, and solder the ESC wire undernieth the gtb solder tabs, so there isnt any confusion, Need to shoogoo the Cap down to!

(Dont mind the old SMC.. lol new ones are on the way!)

(Ill send adrian the final pics once it is 100% done and the new body mounted on her)

BSchorr,
The wiring looks nice on your DB12R. How does it work with the shock installed? It looks like the wires will hit the shock.

Wasnt trying to be rude. I am very knowledgable in material applications and Acetal or "Delrin" is not a material i would chose for this application. It does not draw heat from the motor,It insulates the motor creating further problems. It is also not rigid enough to do the job i am looking for it to do. It is a strong plastic but not for this application. I see no advantage to using this material for pods.

At this time the website is more or less informational and ordering is done by phone. I will have the online shopping completed any day now.
